(WAYNE, NEW JERSEY, September 27, 2005) Fujinon continues to expand its presence in the corporate, educational and government video markets as it prepares for this year’s Government Video Expo to be held November 30th and December 1st at the Washington, DC, Convention Center.
Fujinon (Booth #1209) will display its Precision Focus Assist system, HA42x9.7BERD HD ENG zoom lens, HA13x4.5BERM/BERD HD lens, HA25x11.5BERD lightweight telephoto ENG-style HD lens, TS-P58A optical stabilization system, and CPT-70F-02A pan/tilt system..
“The growing government video, corporate and education production industries have always been extremely important markets for Fujinon,” said Dave Waddell, Marketing Manager, Fujinon. “Fujinon is constantly working to provide these customers with a wide range of lenses and associated systems. Attendees at this year's GV Expo will find an extended product set at our booth, influenced greatly by customer feedback and purchase habits of the past year.”
High definition will be a central theme from Fujinon this year. Fujinon will present its patented Precision Focus Assist system to the Government Video Expo audience. The system, which has received multiple publication awards, is a groundbreaking focusing system designed to improve the quality of HDTV image capture in field and studio applications. The Precision Focus Assist system is a built-in option currently available on the company’s XA101x8.9BESM HD zoom, HA22X7.3BRD HD EFP lens, the HA26x6.7ESM HD studio lens, and the HA13x4.5BRD-S28K HD wide-angle lens. Its premier strength is addressing precise focus issues in HDTV production that results from the format’s shallow depth of focus and the lack of size and resolution in camera viewfinders. The focus assist precisely adjusts the lens for optimum focus by concentrating on an area designated by the cameras operator.
Elsewhere on the HD front, Fujinon will show its established HA42x9.7BERD HD ENG zoom lens. The portable HDTV lens features Fujinon’s built-in OS-Tech image stabilization system to remove unwanted movement from typically unstable long shots. Another HD lenses on display is its HA13x4.5BERM/BERD lens, offering precise focusing and superior optical quality demanded for HD applications along with the durability and lightweight required for field shoots. In addition, Fujinon will present its HA25x11.5BERD lightweight telephoto ENG-style HD Lens.
Fujinon will address ENG lens users with its latest external optical stabilization system, the TS-P58A. Providing an anti-vibration range of up to 20% of picture height, the TS-P58A utilizes the company’s renowned OS-TECH image stabilization technology to deliver steady shots and keep after-shaking to a minimum when shooting with high-magnification lenses. It is designed for the full range of Fujinon’s HD and SD ENG lenses.
Fujinon will also display a version of its CPT-70F-02A pan/tilt system for videoconferencing, church productions and government broadcasting applications. The CPT-70F-02A offers increased speed, reduced power consumption and improved accuracy. When used with the EOP-102J-60D four-head controller and specific cameras, the user can employ remote control for black balance, white balance, shutter speed, gain adjustment and color bars. The system includes an RS-485 interface and operates extremely quietly, a considerable benefit to videoconferencing and similar applications.
